The Absurdities of the TxLeg.

Posted on February 26, 2014 at 1:51 PM
Here's one that'll make you laugh out loud:

The Texas state Senate committee on Health&Human Services met last week to pat themselves on the back for their legislative achievements in women's health care.

Yeah.  You read it right.  Here it is again:

The Texas state Senate committee on Health&Human Services met last week to pat themselves on the back for their legislative achievements in women's health care.

Ignore the 76 family planning clinics that have had to close because of recent legislative restrictions and budget cuts. 

Ignore the fact that the TxLeg slashed the state's family-planning budget by two-thirds back in 2011.

Ignore the fact that a third of Texas women have no health insurance, and 155,000 Texas women have lost access to the most basic preventative health care since 2011.

Ignore the fact that last year Texas was ranked 6th worst in the nation in a report on women's health.

Ugh.  I think I'm done laughing now.


Our dear and lovely Cecile Richards said in a recent email to HuffPost, "It's laughable that the same politicians that have devastated Texas women's access to health care -- cancer screenings, birth control, and safe, legal abortion -- are now touting their so-called achievements in women's health.  If that’s what they call help for Texas women, we've had quite enough of it."


I couldn't agree more.  How 'bout you?

-Rebecca
